Nature and Ethics
I took a video of a particularly interesting butterfly in the Butterfly Rainforest. This butterfly looks very bland from the outside but when it flaps its wings, it reveals it's beautiful blue shade. I was caught off guard by how beautiful such a seemingly unattractive butterfly could really be. Being in the Butterfly Rainforest helped me to connect with nature because I was surrounded by it. Two of my classmates went with me, and they said that they also felt like the way the museum was organized made them feel included in the exhibits. Seeing many examples of how surprising and interesting butterflies can be, like the blue butterfly above, reminds me how important it is to protect our planet so that beautiful creatures like this can continue to live and to fascinate us.
